Untouchables & Richie Mayo

Crawlin' (The Crawl)

TT Shakers

Released: 4th November 2013 | 2 track blues & boogie rock single

On a label quite aptly named 'Sleezy', we offer up both super rare versions of one of the raunchiest instrumental compositions ever conceived. On the flip side, we present the first incarnation of 'Crawlin (The Crawl)' as released by Richi Mayo & The Paramours in 1957 in a seemingly misdirected attempt to follow the popularity of the Stroll, a dance craze which had swept the nation that year. Misdirected because the Paramours piece surely seemed much more befitting a backing to a seedy Times Square burlesque revue than to gentile couple dancing at the high school sock hop. Unperturbed, guitarist Frank Perry decided to give the song a second opportunity to capture the popular imagination a few years later in his next band, The Untouchables. If anything, the sleaze factor was somehow amplified via the scratchy guitar and rolling drum, and of course that honking sax riff and solo. Is this the definitive tassel twirler, the grinder par excellence, the ultimate sleazer? It will certainly take some beating...
